    Sorry I don't do pics or links (Yet) but wish to know the weak spots on the Maverick 88 Platform (Are some of the plastic parts Trigger guard & various other internals replaceable with better quality 590A1 parts and can the Maverick 88 BE MADE TO HOLD MORE SHELLS (Defferent Barrel & Tube) and have a Bayo lug ?

    If you wanted a higher capacity and bayo lug then you should of gone with the 590 instead of the 88.

    Make sure you break it down and clean it real good - none of this " just shoot it " or " Its a Mossberg "' jimjam flimflam -- not smart , not Safe , and certainly not right.

    If you take care of it it will take care of you-'and once you've cleaned it , my personal recommendation is run some 00 Buck through it to seat the parts properly and " break it in before breaking it in"'- then proceed to pump as many Rounds of bulk pack goodness as you can stand.

    I'll get what's a good deal , which for me is Federal 7 1/2 or 8 shot 100'rounder boxes from Walmart , aroind 25ish dollars - hey and then just keep kabooming it at the range. Literally the more you shoot it the more broken in , smoother safer slicker etc it will become.

    Congrats and have fun and don't forget to keep it clean and lubed. Lube especially when new , I believe aippi has detailed instructions on the importance of that on his Website , I learned from reading it

    The link and his entire site / company seems to revolve around Remingtons and especially the 870 but the advice etc makes sense and I learned a lot from reading it and applied quite a bit to my 930'Spx

    I bought that same shotgun this past winter. Mine came with a pistol grip included in the box which I currently have on the gun. I actually cut about 2 inches off the synthetic stock to make it fit more like the 12" LOP Hogue stock and I just shaved the stock rubber pad to fit the new dimensions. Runs great. If I come across some extra whatever money I think I am gonna pick up the Hogue Tamer pistol grip and maybe a heat shield just for kicks but that's about it.

    I've got two suggestions:

    #1 Get a light for it. Lot's of ways to do that, and not terribly expensive (can be, but does not have to be)

    #2 Just add a stretch cuff for a few extra shells.

    Call it done. It is just fine how it is.
